Hellmaster is a 1992 horror movie directed by Douglas Schulze and starring John Saxon, David Emge, and Amy Raasch. The movie centers around a group of medical students who attend a prestigious university, only to discover that the school's dean is conducting nefarious experiments that turn people into monsters. The film opens with a series of grisly murders that take place on the university campus. The police are baffled by the killings, and the students begin to fear for their own safety. Meanwhile, a new student named Ralph (David Emge) arrives on campus and quickly befriends his fellow medical students. Ralph is particularly interested in the work being done by Dr. Jarvis (John Saxon), the dean of the medical school. Dr. Jarvis is known for his groundbreaking research, but his methods are questionable.

As the movie progresses, it becomes clear that Dr. Jarvis is conducting experiments that involve injecting his subjects with a serum that turns them into violent monsters. The serum is derived from a rare herb found in the jungle, and it has the ability to enhance the subject's physical abilities beyond human levels. However, the side effects are severe, and the subjects become mindless killing machines.

Ralph and his friends become increasingly suspicious of Dr. Jarvis and his experiments. They begin to investigate the dean's lab, and they discover evidence of his twisted research. The students decide to confront Dr. Jarvis, but they quickly realize that he is much more dangerous than they had anticipated. Dr. Jarvis has been injecting himself with the serum, and he has become the most powerful monster of all.

The final act of the movie is a tense showdown between the students and Dr. Jarvis. The dean has transformed into a towering, hulking monster with incredible strength and speed. The students must use their wits and their medical knowledge to defeat the dean and put an end to his experiments.

Hellmaster is a low-budget horror movie with all the trappings of the genre. There is plenty of gore, violence, and jump scares to keep fans of horror movies entertained. The acting is decent, with John Saxon bringing a sense of gravitas to his role as the deranged Dr. Jarvis. David Emge is a likable protagonist, and he does a good job of carrying the movie.

The movie's special effects are a mixed bag. The monster designs are impressive, with some truly terrifying creations on display. However, the practical effects are often laughably bad, with obvious stunt doubles and unconvincing gore effects. The movie's low budget is evident in some scenes, with cheap sets and amateurish camerawork.

Overall, Hellmaster is a fun and cheesy horror movie that is sure to please fans of the genre. It's not a great movie by any means, but it has a certain charm that makes it worth watching. The movie's plot is predictable, but the action and horror elements are well-executed. If you're looking for a mindless horror movie to watch on a rainy day, Hellmaster is a solid choice.

Hellmaster is a 1992 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 32 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.9.
